What's Cookin'?

NEW THIS WEEK - March 26th, 2008


What's Cookin'?

Free Project Instructions!

 

Food, family, and fun - often the kitchen is the bustling center point of any household. Culinary masterpieces are created, wonderful aromas waft about, and friends and family connect over savory dishes. Bring that sweet feeling to your embroidery projects with this week's new designs!

Sumptuous grapes, strawberries, and watermelons add a delicious sensation to kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom decor items. Modeled after the classic style of the 1940s, they're available in a bevy of shapes and borders.

Tasty, sugary desserts -- cherry pie, banana splits, strawberry shortcake -- are enticing as applique magnets, and equally sweet on towels and totes for dessert-lovers.

Suave and saucy female chefs proudly conjure up a variety of good eats and drinks. And, quick-stitch vintage, garden friends are cheerful when added to quilts, towels and children's attire.

Cook up some amazing projects with these appetizing designs!  Whip down the page to see them!
